When the Grand Prix came out, it was a means that skaters used to get their programs out there, get feed back and fine tune them as the season went on. It was never meant that a skater or team would come out in their first GP event and be pretty much ready for the season and receiving monster scores. Those who have been following skating and the GP series would tell you the same.
You are, of course, entitled to your opinion of Moir himself and the team of V/M even though many would disagree with you (and that would include past and present ice dance skaters).
Phony is as phony does and there are a number of teams whose programs I found phony -- past and present.
